People Are Talking

“The number one word I would use to describe Corigin is thoughtful. They see investing, especially at the Seed stage, as so much more than dollars and cents--they truly invest in a holistic support for their founders across the full spectrum of what it takes to grow a company.”

John Meadows
| Co-CEO, Bowery Valuation
testimonials_luke_300x300.jpg

“We have been fortunate to get to work with several strategic investors, and yet no other seed investor gave better feedback or direction in how to fine tune our products for the real world. I truly don’t know if we would have been successful without the support of the entire Corigin team and for that we’re incredibly grateful."

Luke Schoenfelder
| CEO, Latch

"Corigin was the first no-bullshit VC that we met. First and foremost, David, Ryan, and the whole Corigin team are good human beings. As lead investors and board members, they provided just the right amount of support, giving help and guidance without suffocating intrusions. This collaboration approach is very rare and very valuable."

Vlad Vukicevic
| CEO, Meural

“When we met David and the team we quickly learned that they were thoughtful, insightful, and available, and we continue to value those qualities as we partner with them to grow our business. During our fundraise, they struck a great balance between really digging in on the diligence side while still moving quickly and keeping us updated on their process.”
